one year ago

One year ago on October 3, I married the perfect person for me. It’s been an incredible year filled with newlywed things like house projects, family events, travel, movies, making fancy dinners at home, lots of happy hours and eating out, glasses and glasses of wine, fun times with friends and more.

I can’t believe it’s already been one year from the biggest and best party of our lives. Our wedding day was amazing for us! It was the perfect celebration of our love and brought our family and friends together. I loved every moment of wedding planning from deciding on our party favors and putting together the boxes to writing indivual notes to each and every guest on the inside of their placecard, it was so much fun!

In honor of our one year anniversary I wanted to share some of my favorite wedding photos by rockstar photographer Eliesa of Photogen Inc. and our wedding  video by the amazing Matt of Capture Studios. Please also check out our list of vendors at the bottom. I LOVED all of our vendors. Enjoy!

My garter below had my grandma’s wedding band sewn on in blue thread. A little something blue!

And my something borrowed—Louboutin shoes borrowed from my boss. LOVE!!!

With my favorite ladies at Hotel Minneapolis!

And walking up to the ceremony…

Walking down the aisle with my grandpa. I definitely got a little choked up.

And my groom…

Hitched and enjoying photos!

The guys.

And us again.

Under a bridge…

Our super fun wedding party! We realized later that eight of us went to Hamline University-the guys for law school and the ladies for undergrad!

Reception time!

This is the point in the night when it hit me that we were married and got to spend the rest of the evening just having fun! Loved this!

Giving my new husband his surprise Dallas Cowboys peanut butter cup flavored grooms cake.

A little mother-daughter dance to Mamma Mia!

And of course, our first dance.
We had an amazing day and a wonderful first year of marriage. We are off on a little one-year anniversary trip next week to Carmel, California. Have a lovely weekend!
